I thought it’d be cute. Besides, I was kinda shy, so I figured I had to use my creativity to tell her I cared about her since I knew I’d never be able to just walk up to her and say it. So I did a poll, as if I were doing a science project ya know? I had this big piece of white poster board and some colored magic markers and I wrote this question…
If you suddenly found out that Biff Muttonson loved you, would you:
Dance for joy?
Seek counseling from a priest?
Find him immediately so you could run up and hug him ‘till he passes out from lack of oxygen?
Grab the old barf bag and make a deposit?
Imagine the wedding and begin to plan the honeymoon?
then I placed it just outside her bedroom window where she’d be sure to
see it in the morning when she looked outside to watch her birdfeeder.
next night I snuck over to her house to see which one she’d picked,
hoping against hope it was the first one! But no, she’d actually made a
choice of her own, an answer I hadn’t anticipated. She’d taken her own
red magic marker and drew a skull and crossbones atop my poll, under
which she’d written the words, “piss off wanker!”
I have to admit, even though I was crushed, her text accent made me hot…
